What movie will be shown?
FOURTEEN-AND-A-HALF COLLISIONS is a 97 minute feature documentary dealing with unexpected friendships, a unique sports team and the wy back to life.

Asael, the victim of a terrorist attack, leaves his home in Israel in late summer of 2017 to try his luck as a wheelchair basketball pro in Hamburg. In Germany he initially scores on court and makes friends with his teammates. The team of nine international top players also lives together on the grounds of a hospital for paraplegics. Anne, one of two female players, meets the patient Julian in the gym and starts training with him. The paraplegic Julian, who fell from a construction site on New Year’s Eve and broke his back, is impressed by the strength and ability of the wheelchair pros. He becomes more and more curious about the team – in which after several defeats – disruptions appear. While Julian prepares to live independently in wheelchair after hospital, a tight father-son like friendship between Asael and his Iranian teammate Ali develops.

“Fourteen-and-a-half Collisions” tells the story of the unusual encounters and strokes of fates without prejudices. Filmmaker Guido Weihermüller and his team followed the protagonists over a period of one year and deliver a sensitive documentary which challenges the audience perspectives in many ways.
